Detail of Tikhonravov Crater interior at 13°N 35°E. Mikhail Tikhonravov (1900-1974) was a Soviet rocket and spacecraft designer.
It appears that this is an ancient lake bed, now filled with dust. A paper by Fasset and Head groups Tikhonravov with other lakes that survived until the end of the Noachian or early Hesperian era (about 3.5 billion years ago) and estimates that it had a greater volume than the largest freshwater lake on Earth.

Keeler Crater, at 10°S 161°E on the farside, named for American astronomer James Edward Keeler, 1857-1900. Amongst other things, Keeler first observed the Encke Gap in Saturn’s rings. The Keeler Gap is named for him, as is a crater on Mars. His ashes are interred under a telescope at the Allegheny Observatory, Pennsylvania.

“Streamlined features in Hooke Crater” at 44°S 316°E on the northern edge of the Argyre Planitia basin. Hooke is a 140km crater named for the 17th century British physicist, best remembered for first describing elasticity with Hooke’s Law: F=-kx.

11°S 28°E. The large crater at centre is Theophilus, one of three lunar craters named for obscure saints (Theophilus of Alexandria, 4th century Pope of the Coptic Church). Critic and chronicler Edward Gibbon described Theophilus as a man “whose hands were alternately polluted with gold and with blood”.
Above (east) is Mädler Crater (19th century German astronomer Johann Heinrich von Mädler). The plain to the right is the Mare Nectaris (Sea of Nectar). The pear-shaped crater at top left is Torricelli (17th century Italian physicist Evangelista Torricelli).
